When you want to play with texture, look first at the material. Leather, wood, fabric, metal or faux fur would all impart something different to your design. Start with a white leather loveseat and two metal chairs, and pair them with a cozy black throw blanket or rug. Next, add pattern and details with statement accent pillows, such as ones with black/ivory patterns in chevron or geometric shapes, or coralline black tassels.
But why are we even talking about blue in the first place? Well, it is back, see. And like a lot of things, we can thank the catwalks for that. "The worlds of fashion and interiors have a close bond, but not a co-dependent one," Amy cautions, adding, "in the case of blue though, it is a story that found its feet in fashion. Shades of soft blue started to emerge last summer but have continued into spring/summer 19 collections with baby blue coming through strong".
Design offers you a many ways to warm up a blue hue. "Even if you choose a cooler blue, you can warm it up through layers of texture and lighting. Warm white bulbs in lighting that spreads from ceiling pendant to wall lights and table lamps and exposed timber floorboards, cosy wool rugs, warming oak furniture and an abundance of textiles from fully-lined curtains to upholstery will promise your room temperature feels balanced, whatever shade of blue you pick," Amy reassures.
